Ayurvedic Management of Childhood Asthama: A Case Report

Dr Akshay Gurav, Sandeep C

Vol. 14, Jul-Dec 2022


Bronchial Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease caused due to the inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the airway and spasm of the smooth muscles of the bronchi. It is characterized by recurrent wheezing, breathlessness, cough, and rapid breathing episodes. Unlike adults, in children, severity is associated with the duration of wheezing, lung functioning, and the risk of allergens, as children are more sensitive to allergens. As per Ayurveda, Shwasa Roga is mainly caused by the Vata and Kapha doshas. The signs and symptoms of Bronchial Asthama can be nearly correlated with Tamaka Shwasa. Tamaka Shwasa is a commonly found variety of Shwasa in children. Such a case of Tamaka Shwasa, i.e., childhood Asthama had approached our clinic. It was managed by the Ayurvedic line of treatment with Shamanaushadi and classical Virechana, and the patient got a satisfactory result.
